I took Dhali hiking today. It should have been snowshoeing, but I was silly and didn't bring my snowshoes. The snow was deep and fluffy - so lots of exercise! We only went about a mile, but it's up some steep hills and with the snow it was tough. I'm pretty sure Dhali didn't want to go any farther...two words - snow balls. Brrrrr! That has to be pretty cold! The snow was taller/deeper than Dhali, so he had to jump and wade for most of the mile. Maybe I should get him some snowpants!
It's weird, but the whole time when we are out I'm thinking about Tibby. So many different places on the trail reminded me of her - there's the spot where she sat for a picture in March, or where we took a picture together last fall, or the spot she chased Zoe, ect.
It's not as bad as if she was actually gone, but I still miss her when I'm doing things with Dhali. I guess this is my first time having two dogs and I feel a little guilty about not taking her with us. But the Dr. said she should avoid all possible places where she could have a reaction for at least a month. We didn't see any dogs today (or people), but I can't guarantee that we wouldn't stumble upon a dog or worse a skier (which she hates).
It's better for her to stay at home, but I still miss her.
